Putin also continued to deny that Russian Federation was involved in any way with the hacking of the Democratic National Committee's email servers past year. And now we're meeting again.
The full interview from the first episode of her new show Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly airs this Sunday on NBC at seven P.M. "That's the extent of my acquaintance with Mr. Flynn".
Retired Lt. Gen. Flynn served as an adviser to Trump's presidential campaign, and then served as President Donald Trump's national security adviser in the White House for less than a month before he was sacked for what the administration said was lying about his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak to Vice President Mike Pence. And I got up and left. And then afterwards I was told, "You know there was an American gentleman, he was involved in some things".
American hackers could have planted false evidence that Russian Federation interfered in the U.S. presidential election, says President Vladimir Putin in his latest speculation about the source of embarrassing Clinton campaign emails leaked during last year's election. Flynn gave a speech at the event - and was paid a $45,000 speaking fee.
In an interview to be aired today evening by NBC, Putin minimized his contact with Flynn, who was sacked by US President Donald Trump in February after offering misleading descriptions of conversations he had had with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
In the picture, which has been widely circulated in the American media, President Putin is seen sitting at a table during a dinner celebrating 10 years of RT, next to the man who served as adviser to Trump's presidential campaign. "It's surprising", he said, raising a laugh even out of the impassive Indian PM, Narendra Modi, who was seated next to him.And in January, days before Trump took office, the United States intelligence community concluded that Putin had ordered an "influence campaign" aimed at hurting Trump's rival, Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton. "A child" could have hacked the election, he said.
